VA Credentialing for Clinical Trunk Students

Slides from 9-4-2020 Seminar on VA Credentialing

The Medical School partners with the Veteran’s Administration Hospital (VAH) to provide clinical opportunities that are essential to our student’s educational development.  VAH, like all other healthcare facilities, have specific requirements that must be met in advance of beginning a clinical experience at the Ann Arbor VA.

All rising Clinical Trunk students must initiate paperwork to obtain VA credential in advance of participating in a clinical experience.  The credentialing process includes required VA online trainee modules, completion of the VA Clinical Trainee Application, and fingerprinting that can be done at the Ann Arbor VA or any Federal facility that offers VA courtesy fingerprinting.

Actual onboarding for new Clinical Trunk students for the 2020-2021 year will occur 2 to 3 a times this year based on when students are scheduled for a clerkships experience at the VA.  Rotations at the VAH will likely be scheduled during October – December 2020, January – April 2021, or May – September 2021.  The credentialing process takes approximately 5-6 weeks to complete.  The OMSE Student Services Office will notify students when their credentials should be submitted to the VA for processing.   Upon receiving your VA credentials, it is the expectation of the Medical School that your credentials will remain valid for the remainder of your medical school education. 

Questions regarding the credentialing process should be directed to the OMSE Student Services Team at Email: medstudentvacredentials@umich.edu.

 Note: Required VA Credentialing documents were provided to eligible students on July 2, 2020.
